Celebrating 40 Years of Independent Storytelling

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the nonprofit Sundance Institute. Join us as we take a look back in the company of the visionary artists whose culture-changing stories have come to life via our labs, grants, and Festivals.

About The Sundance Institute

Founded by Robert Redford in 1981 with the mission of fostering new voices in American storytelling, the nonprofit Sundance Institute is a champion and curator of stories for the stage and screen. Today, our staff of 180 employees works year-round to offer 25 residential labs, grants exceeding $3 million, and ongoing mentorships that support more than 900 artists each year. Each January, the Sundance Film Festival brings artists and audiences together for the premieres of groundbreaking work, and year-round, the Institute hosts a variety of public programs to amplify original voices, inspire new ideas, and rally our community in support of independent storytelling.
